  • Athens, GREECE

    Athens, GREECE
    One of the oldest cities in the world, Athenian history spans more than three millennia, and served as the foundation for much of modern Western culture. Ancient monuments like the Parthenon have been standing for thousands of years.

    Syntagma Square

    Named for the Greek Constitution, Syntagma Square is Athens' central public square, located in front of the Old Royal Palace, which currently houses the Greek Parliament. It was constructed in the 19th century.

    Hellenic Parliament

    The parliament of Greece, located in the Old Royal Palace, overlooking Syntagma Square in Athens.

    Temple of Olympian Zeus

    A former colossal temple dedicated to "Olympian" Zeus, constructed from the 6th century BC and completed until the 2nd century AD. The temple's glory was short-lived, as it fell into disuse after being pillaged during a barbarian invasion in 267 AD.

    Arch of Hadrian

    It is most commonly known in Greek as Hadrian's Gate, a monumental gateway resembling - in some respects - a Roman triumphal arch. The arch is located 325m southeast of the Acropolis.

    Plaka

    The old historical neighborhood of Athens, clustered around the northern and eastern slopes of the Acropolis, and incorporating labyrinthine streets and neoclassical architecture. Plaka is built on top of the residential areas of the ancient town of Athens. It is known as the "Neighborhood of the Gods" due to its proximity to the Acropolis and its many archaeological sites.

    Tower of the Winds

    An octagonal Pentelic marble clocktower in the Roman Agora in Athens. It is considered the world's first meteorological station. The structure features a combination of sundials, a water clock, and a wind vane.

    Monastiraki Square

    A flea market neighborhood in the old town of Athens home to clothing boutiques, souvenir shops, specialty stores, and is a major tourist attraction in Athens and Attica for bargain shopping.

    Hadrian's Library

    It was created by Roman Emperor Hadrian in AD 132 on the north side of the Acropolis of Athens. The building followed a typical Roman Forum architectural style, having only one entrance with a propylon of Corinthian order, a high surrounding wall with protruding niches at its long sides, an inner courtyard surrounded by columns and a decorative oblong pool in the middle.

    Stoa of Attalos

    A stoa (covered walkway or portico) in the Agora of Athens built by and named after King Attalos II of Pergamon, who ruled between 159 BC and 138 BC. The current building was reconstructed in 19521956.

    Psirri

    A gentrified neighbourhood in Athens known for its restaurants, bars, live music tavernas and small number of hotels.
